Ascent Trip ReportI turned off of Hwy 20 onto Silver Creek Road. This road is about 1.5 miles west of Riley. I headed north and then followed Dick Miller Canyon road up into the hills about 11 miles until it intersected FR 4120. I followed this road to a gate near the summit of Dry Mountain. There is a fire lookout on the summit. It was not manned, but I got to climb about 60 feet up the tower for some great views.
